TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) has released a pre-publication, non-edited version of Research Report 893: Systemic Pedestrian Safety Analysis. This guidebook provides a safety analysis method that can be used to proactively identify sites for potential safety improvements based on specific risk factors for pedestrians. A systemic approach, as opposed to a “hot-spot” approach, enables transportation agencies to identify, prioritize, and select appropriate countermeasures for locations with a high risk of pedestrian-related crashes, even when crash occurrence data are sparse. The guidebook also provides important insights for the improvement of data collection and data management to better support systemic safety analyses.
